Remarks by Chinese Ambassador to Ghana H.E. Mdm. Sun Baohong at the Handing-over Ceremony of Goods Donated by Chinese Embassy to the Office of Attorney General of the Republic of Ghana

Honorable Gloria Afua Akuffo, Attorney General & Minister for Justice of the Republic of Ghana,

Respected Officials from the Ministry of Justice,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Good Morning. Thank you all for attending the hand-over ceremony of goods donated by the Chinese Embassy to the Office of the Attorney-General. The donation includes desktop computers, printers, UPS and a cheque of 10,000 Ghana cedi. Though limited in amount, the donation reflects the Chinese Embassy’s sincere desire to support the Attorney General’s Office in organizing a stakeholders’ consultative workshop on the Office of the Special Prosecutor Bill, 2017.

Corruption is a canker to social development. People abhor corruption. Recently, a TV series called “ in the name of the people” becomes very popular in China. This TV series tell the story of contemporary Chinese public prosecutors trying to maintain fairness, justice and the rule of law and investigating corruption cases. The audience rating is at the top and it has obtained many favorable comments.

China’s central leadership attaches great importance to building anti-corruption and clean governance. The setting up of a strong anti-corruption system by both the Party and the Government has won high praises from Chinese people and the international community. We address corruption through the rule of law, prevent corruption through the establishment of a strict supervision and control mechanism and punish corrupt ones through the establishment and implementation of scientific and comprehensive laws and regulations. In recent years, the Communist Party of China (CPC) has introduced a number of internal discipline documents to comprehensively strengthen Party discipline and to put forward requirements that are stricter on the party members’ duties. We made important progress on strengthening the institutional constraints and mobilizing the public to supervise the government as well as building a system that will prevent corruption.

China’s anti-corruption act has gained strong support from the Ghanaian government. In 2015, relevant authorities of our two countries worked closely to catch one of China’s most wanted economic criminals in Ghana. I want to take this opportunity to express once again our appreciation to the government of Ghana.

China-Ghana relations are flourishing with effective cooperation in various fields. It is essential to manage and guide the exchange and cooperation between China and Ghana by legal means in order to protect the legitimate rights and interests of citizens of both sides, maintain a healthy market order, combat transnational crime and ensure social justice. We need to strengthen the exchange of experience on governance and learn from each other and implement the concept of the rule of law in bilateral cooperation. The Chinese government has always educated Chinese citizens and enterprises abroad to abide by the laws and regulations of the host countries, and to contribute to the local economic and social development.

The Chinese side supports the new government of Ghana to carry out anti-corruption campaigns, and expect to strengthen our cooperation and exchanges on both domestic and international combat against corruption. I firmly believe China-Ghana cooperation will yield more fruitful results.

Thank you!
